Why we chose coeducation
There are several key reasons why we chose to establish a coeducational school:
It has been demonstrated that mixed classrooms facilitate learning and enrich a young person’s academic experience. When boys and girls work and learn together, a sense of equality between the genders is nurtured. In turn, this encourages the growth of healthy self-esteem and social skills, and better equips them for a world where both genders play important roles in society.
It is well-established that coeducation environments foster students’ respect for their opposite-sex peers. Additionally, it exposes them to different perspectives and can help diminish fixed gender stereotypes. Because a coed environment more accurately mirrors the coed world in which we live, students are better prepared for the future (e.g., high school, university, the workforce).
